Europe! Voices of Women in Film

Since 2016, more than 60 female filmmakersfrom Europe have seen their celluloid dreams dance across Sydney’s silver – and digital –screens thanks to a key Sydney Film Festival program strand.

Europe! Voices of Women in Film shares exceptional features with an audience and city that mightn’t get the pleasure of seeing them otherwise. It champions women-directed films, celebrates the talents behind them, and tackles cinema’s gender inequality in the most powerful way it can: by connecting movies with viewers.

This year, 10 more female directors join Europe! Voices of Women in Film’s ranks. Hailing from Denmark, Romania, Slovenia, Finland, Ireland, Switzerland, Sweden, Italy, Germany and The Netherlands, each of 2022’s spotlighted filmmakers is a name to watch — and each of their films is a must-see.

Co-presenters of this crucial program for six years, Screen International and European Film Promotion are again thrilled to bring these essential new features to Sydney cinephiles.
